John Lofgren Donkey Puncher in Hokkaido Ezo Bear Hide: $1950 (Pre-Order)

Hoooo boy. The John Lofgren custom made-to-order event at Standard & Strange is about to expire, and just when you were likely feeling pretty satisfied with the MTO you had purchased or had your eye on, John Lofgren went and dropped a metric TON of heat for pre-order at S&S. There’s a few core makeups available that you’ve likely seen before, but a whole lotta new, exciting stuff.

Let’s start by taking a look at the boots that will likely garner the most buzz: Donkey Punchers in…bear hide?! Yes, it’s true! The leather on this lace-to-toe boot has been ethically sourced from Ezo bears in Hokkaido, Japan that have died from natural causes. Exceedingly unique stuff, and you’re not likely to see much of it ever, so consider taking the plunge if you’ve got the funds.
